We’ve all heard about the Second Amendment infringing legislation recently passed in New York and Colorado. Now, our friends in Connecticut are facing an equally frightening threat to their Constitutional Right to bear arms. Tomorrow, lawmakers will vote on a Emergency Certification Bill (E-Cert) which fast tracks the bill through the legislative process.
If passed into law, this bill will -
-Bans nearly all commonly owned firearms used for self-defense, arbitrarily adding more than 100 new firearms to the gun ban list.
-Bans the sale, purchase and transfer of magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition.
-Creates a magazine registration scheme.
-Requires an eligibility certificate for the purchase of any rifle or shotgun that mandates a training course, fingerprinting and a voluntary/involuntary mental health admissions check.
-Requires an eligibility certificate and a background check to purchase ammunition.
-Criminalizes the private transfer of a firearm.
